"In detailed descriptions delivered with perfect, paradoxically languid urgency by Ms. Canfield and Mr. Pecinka, they map the town where they grew up. We learn about its best houses, its streets, its schools and the racially divided town plan, devised by Chris’s father." - Ben Brantley NYTIMES




Tom is a New York actor who most recently starred opposite Uma Thurman in a new translation of Ibsen’s Ghosts at the Williamstown Theater Festival. He also recently appeared in Theatre for a New Audience’s world premiere production of “He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box” in what The Hollywood Reporter called an “affecting performance” and Ben Brantley of the NY Times hailed as “perfect.” The critically acclaimed production also received an Obie Award in 2018. Prior to that, Tom had appeared in The Public Theater’s production of “Troilus and Cressida” at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, played the title role in Stravinsky’s “The Soldiers Tale” at Carnegie Hall alongside Michael Cerveris, as well as understudied Michael Urie in his award-winning performance as Arnold in Harvey Fierstein’s “Torch Song” at Second Stage Theater. Besides his work in New York, Tom has had the great privilege to work at some of the nation’s leading Regional Theaters. These include multiple shows at Yale Repertory Theater, Hartford Stage and ACT in San Francisco. For his regional work he has received 3 Connecticut Critics Circle Award Nominations. Tom is a graduate of Fordham University and Yale School of Drama.
